Soaring to Excellence!

Dear Families, welcome to the American School of Recife! We are a private American overseas school that offers both American and Brazilian studies curriculums.

The American School of Recife’s Mission Statement stresses our commitment to molding “lifelong learners with an international perspective”, reaching their potential, creating “critical thinkers” who will be fully equipped to be “responsible world citizens”.

Not only does EAR aim for academic excellence (as seen in formative and summative assessment successes, MAP scores, AP scores, and university acceptances), we also aim to educate the ‘whole child. The 21st century is very different from the 20th century, and changes are occurring at a much faster rate than ever before. It is our vision to prepare EAR graduates to be ready for these changes.

The power of our youth and their leadership potential can never be underestimated. We believe in the power of learning and shaping students who will make the world a better and more peaceful place than it is today, and we shape leaders for future generations.

Our new buildings and construction plans continue to ensure that EAR enjoys the best facilities possible. Also, we hire and nurture outstanding teachers from around the world. There is much to do in the upcoming years, with many challenges to face. Similarly, there are a lot of opportunities to be grasped. In this way, I believe that we will go from strength to strength and continue to be one of the leading schools in Brazil and South America.

Whether you are an expatriate student or parent considering a move of your child to our school, we hope you find the answers to your questions on this website. Feel free to schedule a visit to see our school in action, and contact us if you have questions about our exceptional educational programs and services.
